I caught movement overhead and found where the movement stopped.
I moved closer and was able to position myself relative to the sun to get clear details of the juvenile hawk in the prior photo.
The coloring on this hawk seems to indicate it could be a juvenile.
It's in a tree at a level of the roof of the 4-story building.
There are two hawks in this image and they may be mating.
This tree was at quite a distance so this image is as clear and close as I could get.
Interesting how the legs are a much lighter color than the breast.
The base of the tree was about 10 feet from me (in the swamp), but because the hawk was about 40 feet in the air, it does look like I was right beside the tree when I shot this.
(And I did end up with a crick in my neck from taking these images. lol)
A young hawk in late November.
The neck flexibility of this bird.
Hawk in flight.
It was quite windy that day resulting in the ends of the feathers moving with the breeze.
